CALL TO ACTION: Participate in Interprofessional Ethics Survey of Moral Distress

Hello,

Are you a practicing physician, registered nurse, dentist or dental hygienist?Interprofessional researchers at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at Houston invite you to participate in an anonymous, secure online survey about moral distress. Moral distress occurs when professionals cannot carry out what they believe to be ethically appropriate actions because of internal or external constraints. As a practicing professional, you have valuable knowledge and experiences to share that can assist in identifying the precursors and effects of moral distress.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and provides you with the opportunity to share your thoughts, perceptions, and experiences.  Your participation in this research study is completely voluntary.  Completion of the survey implies your informed consent to participate.  Responses are entirely confidential and no identifiable information will be obtained.
